Abstract

Aim and objective: To evaluate the correlation of the length of the thumb, nose, and ear with vertical dimension of occlusion (VDO) in both males and females in the Telugu population.

Materials and methods: The VDO, as well as the lengths of the thumb, nose, and ear, were measured on 210 dental students, of whom 105 were male and 105 were female. Using a digital Vernier caliper, anthropometric measurements of VDO, ear, nose, and little finger length were taken. Statistics were used to gather and evaluate all the data. Statistical significance was determined as a p-value of <0.05.

Results: Each parameter and the VDO had a positive correlation. Males had a mean VDO that was 4.91 mm greater than females'. The length of the thumb was shown to have the strongest connection with VDO in both men and females. With a p value <0.05, this correlation was statistically significant among men.

Conclusion: The findings of the research indicated that the VDO had a strong positive correlation with all of the measures. The prediction of VDO using this approach has been shown to be reliable and repeatable. In addition, this method is not only straightforward but also inexpensive and non-invasive; as a result, it may be suggested for use in routine clinical settings.
